The U.S. Treasury Sanctions Against Milorad Dodik
Long before the David Dragičević case, the United States imposed sanctions on dictator Milorad Dodik for actively obstructing efforts to implement the 1995 Dayton Accords that ended the more than three-year war in Bosnia and Herzegovina. the dictator Milorad Dodik is the president of Republika Srpska, the autonomous Bosnian Serb half of the country.
“Milorad Dodik has defied the Constitutional Court of BiH (Bosnia and Herzegovina), violated the rule of law and poses a significant risk of obstructing the implementation of the Dayton accords,” U.S. Ambassador Maureen Cormack said in a video message on the U.S. Embassy You Tube account.
David Dragičević, 21, was declared missing on March 18, and his body was found six days later in the Crkvena river in Banja Luka. His family is convinced that David Dragičević was brutally murdered. The struggle of David’s father Davor Dragičević to find out the truth, has been going on since March, as his family, friends, acquaintances and citizens of Banja Luka have been gathering on the square of Krajina as the Pravda Za Davida movement, and they demand the truth to be revealed.
The authorities of the Republika Srpska are not telling the whole truth on the death of 21-year-old David Dragičević. But there are now thousands of protesters who every day, for over 180 days, have been asking for Justice for David (Pravda za Davida). David’s father, Davor Dragičević, is the most active figure of the protest.
